In the poignant scene, Amy (played by real life neuroscientist Mayim Bialik) delivered an emotional speech encouraging young girls to enter the science profession while picking up the honour.

While their proud friends watched from the crowd, she said: "It would just like to take this moment to say to all the young girls out there who dream about science as a profession: go for it.

"It is the greatest job in the world. And if anybody tells you you can't, don't listen."

Her character's empowering words tugged on viewers' heartstrings, who were left in tears and claimed it was as much of a message from Amy as it was from Mayim herself.

"I felt that this was as much a message from Mayim herself than it was from Amy since she's one of the few women scientists we know of," another shared.

"I honestly feel women should play a bigger role in the field of scientific study."

A third penned: "A most poignant moment of the finale's second half. Thank you @missmayim for a strong and fierce role model, not just for the young generations but all. We love you!"

The hour-long instalment also saw Penny and Leonard learn that they were pregnant, while Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar made a surprise cameo.

The Big Bang Theory is the longest running multi-camera sitcom in history and spanned over 12 seasons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jim Parsons made the decision to pull the plug on the show.

His decision not to be in the show anymore meant that it would have to end, as creator Chuck Lorre believed that there was no way to continue without the full ensemble.

The two final episodes will air on the UK's E4 on Thursday, 23rd May.
